Adam has died

Post by High C » Sat Jun 10, 2017 8:36 am

Adam West died last night at age 88, per multiple reports.

Sorry to have to be the one to post it. We all knew this day would come eventually, as it does for all of us, but it's still incredibly devastating. He gave us all so much joy and happiness in a difficult world.

Just saw it on the news. Obviously as a member of a forum devoted to the show, it goes without saying, this a very bad day. No words really. I'll just have to let it sink in.

RIP, sir. You've been my hero and my moral compass since I was four years old. Tonight, I'll raise a glass in your honor.

sad day in America. Not unexpected given some of the recent cancellations. The article said he had a short battle with leukemia - fast acting and deadly.

Prayers to the West family. A part of all of us died today.

My Daughter just told me and I thought it might have been a hoax.
Brought chills to me when I verified here.
R.I.P sir

Very sad news when I heard it on the radio just a short time ago. Our childhood hero is gone but he will never be forgotten. Prayers and thoughts goes out to his family, friends and to his fans and followers worldwide.

I cannot begin to think of anything appropriate to say, other than that I pray for his family.

Mr. West brought much joy to innumerable people for more than half of a century. Now, he's moved on to the greatest adventure.

So long, and enjoy the next life, Adam West.

Farewell Adam West...There are no words that I could say that would reflect how much joy and laughter you gave to me and countless others for decades. May God welcome you into His Heavenly Kingdom and furnish you with your Great Bat Cave In The Sky! You will be missed, Old Chum.

Rest In Peace, Sir.
